Christian Adoption Services Picnic

Saturday, we spent the day at Dan Nicholas Park, celebrating life and family with Christian Adoption Services (our adoption agency). Families who have adopted, or who are in the process were there to enjoy a fun day
together.

 I have to tell you...just being there and seeing all the beautiful forever families who have been created through adoption is truly remarkable!

 Nothing, and I mean NOTHING excites me more than seeing families come together to celebrate life and the beautiful gift of adoption!!!

Unfortunately, Corban had his last soccer game AND a dress rehearsal for his church musical scheduled on the same day as the picnic. So it was just me and the three little ones who were able to attend this year.
When we arrived at the park, we enjoyed a picnic lunch with everyone. I made things easy on myself and just  picked up some Wendy's on our way up to the park.
The kids certainly didn't want to take long to eat. 
They were too excited to hit the park and see all the fun attractions!

First on every one's list was the carousal.



After that, everyone was ready for a train ride.

We then explored the wildlife center (which is home to over 50 wild animals)...

And hit up the petting zoo!

After one last trip down the slide, this momma was beat and it was time to call it a day!

We are beyond grateful to CAS for the role they played in making our family what it is today! 

They helped make our biggest dream come true!!!

What a wonderful outing & how totally awesome to see so many families all together who have been blessed by adoption! Love it!
And you are a brave, tireless SuperMama to do all that by yourself!
